Townhouse in Rockingham, WA
A prime location 25 metres from Palm Beach in Rockingham. This architect designed complex has a relaxing holiday feel to it.
The upstairs living area with a private balcony, expanses of glass, and tasteful, comfortable furnishings creates a very pleasant ambience which is augmented by the breathtaking day and night views across Cockburn Sound to Garden Island. Perfect for a private, relaxing interlude, a family holiday or a reunion.
The main living areas all have ocean views North West to Garden Island.
The townhouse/villa is fully equipped, and sleeps up to 4 adults, or 2 adults with up to 4 children. All the beds are made up for the guests when they arrive.
Facilities include a private rear courtyard, BBQ facilities and lockup carport. There is also additional off street parking for a second vehicle, boat or trailer.
Rockingham has a Mediterranean style climate - mild winters and hot summers. In winter, between occasional storms, are many days of beautiful sunshine. Summer is beach weather. The temperatures are milder than Perth, and the sea breezes are gentler.
The location just 40 minutes south from Perth is a winner. It diminishes many issues associated with travelling to a holiday destination and going home afterwards or to the airport.
Beaches - wines - galleries - dolphins - penguins
Summer is magical. Relax on the balcony in the late afternoon watching the gentle breezes die out while the blue waters glass over. The sound of children playing on the beach drifts inland. For the more energetic a late afternoon swim after a day's sight seeing and wine tasting is recommended.
Winter in Rockingham is also very special - the crowds have gone, but the wineries, scenery and galleries remain. The fishing is even better, the golf courses less crowded. The unit is fully heated in winter. Regularly dolphins can be seen from the balcony, but for an unforgettable experience take the "Swim with the Dolphins" tour at the nearby jetty. The beach is available year round.
Cockburn Sound is a boating and fishing playground. The nearby Lake Richmond and Yangebup Environment Centre are unique destinations.
Restaurants, Shopping and Entertainment
A selection of top class restaurants ranging from gold plate award winning to take-away are a 15 minute's stroll away.
For some retail therapy visit Rockingham Centre, Rockingham City and a huge variety of other locations, for example, Fremantle and Mandurah.
There are two theatre complexes, nightclubs, and a variety of pubs/taverns within minutes.

Fantastic 3 days
Perfect! It was like home away from home, with nothing left out. Beds - great, extra linen on hand, even books to read and dvd's to watch. Binoculars came in very handy. Perfect location. Thank you, we will be back

Cosy, spacious, well equippe and centrally located
Ideal spot in Rockingham for week end or extended stay. More than enough space for a family with kids. Good neighbourhood and a very short stroll to the seashore and café strip.

We found the apartment very neat and clean. The small touches of welcome were much appreciated. Fresh milk in the fridge, fruit on the bench as well as basic (even some luxury included in this) items needed in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Lovely view of the ocean and a beautiful beach to play and swim just across the street. A very comfortable stay and I was especially impressed with the comfortable beds and clean, good linen provided. A great place to stay!

We had a wonderful week in the apartment. It has everything you need - not just the furniture and rooms, but the kitchen facilities for a holiday. I hadn't needed to bring the glad wrap or tea bags or sugar! I also loved the fact that every possible cleaning agent was available. The location was stunning - we walked across the road each day for a swim..and walked just a little further for a delicious lunch. I can recommend the nearby Spill the Beans cafe for breakfast or lunch. While the bathrooms could do with some renovating, the water was hot and plentiful!
A lovely, relaxing holiday.
